SeaWorld San Antonio Confirms Wood Coaster for 2020 With New Tease

We're inching closer to SeaWorld San Antonio doing their full announcement of the park's new for 2020 wooden roller coaster.  While the park has had some minor teases before, the latest they released makes it 100% clear that they are building a new wooden roller coaster for next season.

The clip even goes as far as showing some of the animated point of view ride video that they've created, though the clip is short and certainly leaves us wanting more.  They do note that the coaster will be the tallest and fastest wooden roller coaster in Texas.

A quick look at Roller Coaster Database helps us see what the SeaWorld San Antonio ride has to beat to have those titles.  Judge Roy Scream at Six Flags Over Texas is 71 feet tall with a top speed of 45 miles per hour, Kemah Boardwalk's Boardwalk Bullet stands 96 feet tall and hits 51 miles per hour, and Switchback at ZDT's Amusement Park hits 64 feet tall and goes 41 miles per hour.

So, the new SeaWorld coaster only needs to be 97 feet tall and go 52 miles per hour to be the tallest and fastest wood coaster in Texas.

Here's the official tease:
